Savanna Cruise

Though the weather looked rough the Captain did his best to keep us out of the storm area of the ruver. The trip was so worth it. We had a great trip and would do it again.

Had a great sunset dinner cruise with my wife for our anniversary. The crew was great, the foot was very good. We even got to see some dolphins during our dinner and afterwards.

My husband and I and another couple thoroughly enjoyed our sunset dinner cruise last night aboard the Spirit of Harbor Town! The meal was delicious and our server, Regan Wild, did an outstanding job attending to our needs! I do wish, though, that we had been seated on the top level where it would have been cooler and the view... More

This was a nice trip through the intercoastal water ways. The trip leaves promptly at schedule times so don't be late. 4 hrs in savannah Is nice but 5 hrs would be ideal. All and all nice way to travel

We took the cruise from HHI to Savannah and really enjoyed our trip- Boat left at 9 AM, got to Savannah before 11 AM- time to enjoy being a tourist in Savannah before boarding the boat at 3 PM. Saw a few dolphins on the waterways and enjoyed the scenery! Highly recommend!

The staff was very nice, However; I was told boat would not go through ocean and it did. I get sea sick so I wouldn't have taken. Additionally, it took over an hour to leave and board ship. Computer issues on the way back caused an even longer delay.

This dinner cruise is great. We went last year,and it was fantastic so we went again this year. It was still fantastic. The cruise itself is so relaxing and romantic. The sunsets are beautiful. The service and the food are both worth every penny. The buffet has a great assortment, shrimp and grits, chicken, and beef brisket. All served with... More

Horrible in all. Boat ride was only good thing. $50 for boat and $60 to rent a broken down golf cart. Cruise is 9-1 which is silly as many things on island do not open until 11 if at all. Many other better options.

On Tuesday and Thursday the Spirit of Harbour Town goes to Savannah. Your trip is about 90 minutes each way with 4 hours to explore Savannah. This is a pleasant trip.
